Overview of keyworker housing

Narrator: Welcome to our keyworker accommodation, servicing Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in West London, which consists of Hammersmith, Queen Charlotte’s, Charing Cross, and St. Mary’s Hospitals. Metropolitan Thames Valley works with NHS trusts all over the South of England to provide convenient and affordable accommodation for the staff of some of the best hospitals in the UK.

Based next to Hammersmith Hospital in White City, we have a total of 295 homes available for hospital staff and other key workers who want to live close to Imperial College Healthcare Trust Hospitals or Central London. These are comprised of studio flats, one-bedroom flats, rooms for doctors on call and patient relatives. They are all fully furnished and benefit from a secure door entry system.

A tenant describes her experience

Tenant: “Commuter links really good for work. I work cross site with Imperial College. So I have full commuter links to all the hospitals. The flats are self-contained. You got your own kitchen and bathroom, no sharing with anybody. And it’s a secure site so security swipe access everywhere. Nobody can get in where they can’t and not allowed. I think the rent’s really reasonable for living in zone 2 in London, and competitive prices around the area do not touch the price here. It’s a really good deal.”


Narrator: Wi-Fi is readily available. And there are various speeds to choose from. Other payable services include an on-site laundry facility, bicycle lockers, and limited car parking. There is an accommodation office on site staffed by our friendly and helpful staff who can assist with any repairs and maintenance issues or other aspects of your tenancy.


The Hammersmith accommodation is conveniently close to the hospital and only a 10-minute walk to White City and Wood Lane Underground Stations, from where you can catch the Central and Hammersmith and City Lines. Westfield London Shopping Center is 10 to 15 minutes’ walk away, where you can find a selection of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle shops, as well as many restaurants and cafes.

Also nearby is the new BBC television center, which is still the home of BBC live audience shows. It has many independent cafes, restaurants, and a cinema close by. We are lucky to be centrally located within easy reach of Kensington Palace, the famous Portobello Market, and other major attractions in Central London. We have been building and managing key worker homes for over two decades and are delighted to be able to offer these homes for you to enjoy.
